From Arendell Parrott Academy


Arendell Parrott Academy recently inducted 42 new members into its National Honor Society, bringing total membership to 105 students.

Patrick Mayo, of Washington, is one of these new inductees.

APA made the switch from Beta Club to National Honor Society last year because the society focuses primarily on academics and best meets the needs of APA students. APA students no longer limit their college applications to schools in North Carolina, or even in the southeastern United States.

Students are applying and attending universities in all corners of the nation, with some attending internationally.

Since NHS is a nationally recognized organization, it is a great fit for Parrott Academy and represents APA’s continued commitment to excellence.

Members of the National Honor Society are selected by the faculty of the school for their scholarship, leadership, service and character. To be eligible, a student’s cumulative weighted GPA must be 4.0 or higher.

Throughout the year, members of APA’s chapter will serve as role models for other students. In addition to the strong academic records, which establish eligibility for membership, chapter members are leaders in many student organizations and serve APA and the community through multiple activities and service projects.

Parrott Academy is proud of and welcomes its new NHS members.
